1 H7458 And there was a famine H776 in the land H905 , besides H7223 the first H7458 famine H3117 that was in the days H85 of Abraham H3327 . And Isaac H3212 [H8799] went H40 to Abimelech H4428 king H6430 of the Philistines H1642 to Gerar.
2 H3068 And the LORD H7200 [H8735] appeared H559 [H8799] to him, and said H3381 [H8799] , Go not down H4714 into Egypt H7931 [H8798] ; dwell H776 in the land H559 [H8799] which I shall tell thee of:
3 H1481 [H8798] Sojourn H776 in this land H1288 [H8762] , and I will be with thee, and will bless H2233 thee; for to thee, and to thy seed H5414 [H8799] , I will give H411 all these H776 countries H6965 [H8689] , and I will perform H7621 the oath H7650 [H8738] which I swore H85 to Abraham H1 thy father;
4 H7235 0 And I will make H2233 thy seed H7235 [H8689] to multiply H3556 as the stars H8064 of heaven H5414 [H8804] , and will give H2233 to thy seed H411 all these H776 countries H2233 ; and in thy seed H1471 shall all the nations H776 of the earth H1288 [H8694] be blessed;
5 H6118 Because H85 that Abraham H8085 [H8804] obeyed H6963 my voice H8104 [H8799] , and kept H4931 my charge H4687 , my commandments H2708 , my statutes H8451 , and my laws.
7 H582 And the men H4725 of the place H7592 [H8799] asked H802 him of his wife H559 [H8799] ; and he said H269 , She is my sister H3372 [H8804] : for he feared H559 [H8800] to say H802 , She is my wife H582 ; lest, said he, the men H4725 of the place H2026 [H8799] should kill H7259 me for Rebekah H2896 ; because she was fair H4758 to look upon.
8 H748 [H8804] And it came to pass, when he had been there a long H3117 time H40 , that Abimelech H4428 king H6430 of the Philistines H8259 [H8686] looked out H1157 at H2474 a window H7200 [H8799] , and saw H3327 , and, behold, Isaac H6711 [H8764] was sporting H7259 with Rebekah H802 his wife.
9 H40 And Abimelech H7121 [H8799] called H3327 Isaac H559 [H8799] , and said H389 , Behold, surely H802 she is thy wife H559 [H8804] : and how saidst H269 thou, She is my sister H3327 ? And Isaac H559 [H8799] said H559 [H8804] to him, Because I said H4191 [H8799] , Lest I should die on her account.
10 H40 And Abimelech H559 [H8799] said H6213 [H8804] , What is this thou hast done H259 to us? one H5971 of the people H4592 might lightly H7901 [H8804] have lain H802 with thy wife H935 [H8689] , and thou wouldest have brought H817 guiltiness upon us.
11 H40 And Abimelech H6680 [H8762] charged H5971 all his people H559 [H8800] , saying H5060 [H8802] , He that toucheth H376 this man H802 or his wife H4191 [H8800] shall surely H4191 [H8714] be put to death.
12 H3327 Then Isaac H2232 [H8799] sowed H776 in that land H4672 [H8799] , and received H8141 in the same year H3967 H8180 an hundredfold H3068 : and the LORD H1288 [H8762] blessed him.
13 H376 And the man H1431 [H8799] became great H3212 H1980 [H8799] , and continued H1432 , and grew H1431 0 until he became H3966 very H1431 [H8804] great:
14 H4735 For he had possession H6629 of flocks H4735 , and possession H1241 of herds H7227 , and very many H5657 servants H6430 : and the Philistines H7065 [H8762] envied him.
15 H875 For all the wells H1 which his father's H5650 servants H2658 [H8804] had dug H3117 in the days H85 of Abraham H1 his father H6430 , the Philistines H5640 [H8765] had stopped H4390 [H8762] them, and filled H6083 them with earth.
16 H40 And Abimelech H559 [H8799] said H3327 to Isaac H3212 [H8798] , Go H3966 from us; for thou art much H6105 [H8804] mightier than we.
17 H3327 And Isaac H3212 [H8799] departed H2583 [H8799] from there, and pitched his tent H5158 in the valley H1642 of Gerar H3427 [H8799] , and dwelt H8033 there.
18 H3327 And Isaac H2658 [H8799] dug H7725 [H8799] again H875 the wells H4325 of water H2658 [H8804] , which they had dug H3117 in the days H85 of Abraham H1 his father H6430 ; for the Philistines H5640 [H8762] had stopped H310 them after H4194 the death H85 of Abraham H7121 [H8799] : and he called H8034 their names H8034 after the names H834 by which H1 his father H7121 [H8804] had called them.
19 H3327 And Isaac's H5650 servants H2658 [H8799] dug H5158 in the valley H4672 [H8799] , and found H875 there a well H2416 of springing H4325 water.
20 H7462 [H8802] And the herdmen H1642 of Gerar H7378 [H8799] contended H3327 with Isaac's H7462 [H8802] herdmen H559 [H8800] , saying H4325 , The water H7121 [H8799] is ours: and he called H8034 the name H875 of the well H6230 Esek H6229 [H8694] ; because they strove with him.
21 H2658 [H8799] And they dug H312 another H875 well H7378 [H8799] , and contended H7121 [H8799] for that also: and he called H8034 the name of it H7856 Sitnah.
22 H6275 [H8686] And he departed H2658 [H8799] from there, and dug H312 another H875 well H7378 [H8804] ; and for that they did not contend H7121 [H8799] : and he called H8034 the name of it H7344 Rehoboth H559 [H8799] ; and he said H6258 , For now H3068 the LORD H7337 [H8689] hath made room H6509 [H8804] for us, and we shall be fruitful H776 in the land.
24 H3068 And the LORD H7200 [H8735] appeared H3915 to him the same night H559 [H8799] , and said H430 , I am the God H85 of Abraham H1 thy father H3372 [H8799] : fear H854 not, for I am with H1288 [H8765] thee, and will bless H7235 [H8689] thee, and multiply H2233 thy seed H5650 for my servant H85 Abraham's sake.
25 H1129 [H8799] And he built H4196 an altar H7121 [H8799] there, and called H8034 upon the name H3068 of the LORD H5186 [H8799] , and pitched H168 his tent H3327 there: and there Isaac's H5650 servants H3738 [H8799] dug H875 a well.
26 H40 Then Abimelech H1980 [H8804] went H1642 to him from Gerar H276 , and Ahuzzath H4828 one of his friends H6369 , and Phichol H8269 the chief captain H6635 of his army.
27 H3327 And Isaac H559 [H8799] said H4069 to them, Why H935 [H8804] come H8130 [H8804] ye to me, seeing ye hate H7971 [H8762] me, and have sent me away from you?
28 H559 [H8799] And they said H7200 [H8804] , We saw H7200 [H8800] certainly H3068 that the LORD H559 [H8799] was with thee: and we said H423 , Let there be now an oath H996 between H996 us, even between H3772 [H8799] us and thee, and let us make H1285 a covenant with thee;
29 H6213 [H8799] That thou wilt do H7451 us no harm H5060 [H8804] , as we have not touched H6213 [H8804] thee, and as we have done H7535 to thee nothing but H2896 good H7971 [H8762] , and have sent thee away H7965 in peace H6258 : thou art now H1288 [H8803] the blessed H3068 of the LORD.
30 H6213 [H8799] And he made H4960 them a feast H398 [H8799] , and they ate H8354 [H8799] and drank.
31 H7925 [H8686] And they rose early H1242 in the morning H7650 [H8735] , and swore H376 one H251 to another H3327 : and Isaac H7971 [H8762] sent them away H3212 [H8799] , and they departed H7965 from him in peace.
32 H3117 And it came to pass the same day H3327 , that Isaac's H5650 servants H935 [H8799] came H5046 [H8686] , and told H182 him concerning H875 the well H2658 [H8804] which they had dug H559 [H8799] , and said H4672 [H8804] to him, We have found H4325 water.
33 H7121 [H8799] And he called H7656 it Shebah H8034 : therefore the name H5892 of the city H884 is Beersheba H3117 to this day.
34 H6215 And Esau H705 was forty H8141 years H1121 old H3947 [H8799] when he took H802 for a wife H3067 Judith H1323 the daughter H882 of Beeri H2850 the Hittite H1315 , and Bashemath H1323 the daughter H356 of Elon H2850 the Hittite:
